The **deltoidal hexecontahedron**, also called the **strombic hexecontahedron** or **small lanceal ditriacontahedron**, is one of the 13 Catalan solids. It has 60 kites as faces, with 12 order-5, 20 order-3, and 30 order-4 vertices. It is the dual of the uniform small rhombicosidodecahedron.

It can also be obtained as the convex hull of a dodecahedron, an icosahedron, and an icosidodecahedron. If the dodecahedron has unit edge length, the icosahedron's edge length is and the icosidodecahedron's edge length is .

Each face of this polyhedron is a kite with its longer edges times the length of its shorter edges. These kites have one angle measuring , the opposite angle measuring , and the other two angles measuring .

## Related polytopes[edit | edit source]

The deltoidal hexecontahedron is topologically equivalent to the rhombic hexecontahedron which has golden rhombi for faces instead of kites.
